Azlan Othman

The Public Works Department (JKR) announced that maintenance work at the Seria Water Treatment Plant is still underway. The three-month project commenced on December 12, 2020.

Certain areas in the Belait District, particularly Mukim Seria, Mukim Kuala Belait and Mukim Kuala Balai, may experience discoloured water, low water pressure and water disruptions periodically.

The public can source for water from the blue tank available in six locations – Mohammad Jamalul Alam Mosque in Kuala Belait; Kampong Sungai Teraban Mosque; STKRJ Lorong 3, Seria Surau; Kampong Pandan Mosque; Pengiran Jaya Negara Pengiran Abdul Momin Secondary School at Pandan 7; and Paduka Seri Begawan Sultan Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Religious School in Kuala Belait.

The public is urged to make prudent use of water consumption and to clean their tanks to reduce water discolouration. They can also contact Darussalam hotline 123 for the supply of clean water or to lodge complaints.
